Garmin Nuvi 295W Review
The good: The Garmin Nuvi 295W features crisply rendered maps and quick routing/rerouting of trips. Its text-to-speech feature speaks street names when giving directions. The unit's autocorrect function learns frequently typed words and helps with entering destinations quickly.
The bad: All of the Nuvi 295W's connected features require Wi-Fi connectivity, which we found finicky to connect. Screen resolution is a bit low for Web browsing. The unit lacks traffic data, highway lane guidance, and Bluetooth hands-free calling, all of which are very useful features for in-car navigation.
The bottom line: The Garmin Nuvi 295W is a solid point-to-point GPS navigator with a few neat tricks that on-foot navigators may appreciate, but its secondary camera and Wi-Fi-connected features just aren't very useful from behind the wheel.
